Great hotel and excellent service. Food is great and beds are so comfortable. First time at a Dreams chain and I have to say they have exceeded my expectations! We've travelled a lot throughout the Caribbean and Mexico but I think this may be my best vacation to date. Only negative comment would be the beach is not swimable but...

This is a nice resort, but was recently changed from a Secrets (all adult resort) to a Dreams (family resort) due to a lack of visitor business. The entire staff put forth the ultimate effort to make our stay the best ever, but the resort is still undergoing some changes and is in need of upgraded repairs in the some...

Staff and service in restaurants were great and property was very clean, but other services were inconsistently delivered (room cleaning, clean towels, stocking mini-bar, etc). Room service was virtually non-existent (they just didn't show up, or if they did the food was cold). Many things didn't work (no ice makers anywhere and since room service didn't show up - you...

I just returned from a wonderful and relaxing stay at Dreams Playa Bonita over the Thanksgiving holiday with a group of four. I admit, we were all a little worried by some of the unfavorable reviews on Trip Advisor prior to our vacation, but I am pleased to report those negative comments were completely unfounded. I’ve been to about ten...

The resort is absolutely breathtaking. Laying by the infinity pool & looking out into the ocean, you can see islands in the distance and the ships waiting for the canal. It is a very relaxing place! There is also an adult only pool that is very quiet & has a nice little waterfall in the middle. The main infinity pool...

Wife surprised family and a couple of friends with a Thanksgiving trip to Panama City and we stayed at this resort five days. Grounds were beautiful, rooms clean, amenities well kept. Youngest used the kids club which she enjoyed, pools were well maintained. Beach is ok to look at but didn't swim there, not sure you can - tide also...

Not as expected and not worthy of this chain. Arrived late, compliments of Sunwing. No record of my reservation but staff soon remedied that. Restaurants all closed after 11. Room service offered but hard to track down. Eventually (2 AM) a mediocre Club sandwich was provided. Pros: Lovely location. Clean rooms. Some staff were exemplary. Cons: The tide goes out...

Please understand before traveling that Panama is a Spanish-speaking country. If your Spanish is weak (or limited), you may encounter communication challenges with many of the Spanish-dominant staff. This remodeled resort, a former InterContinental property, was originally branded as Secrets Playa Bonita. We booked the trip in March 2016. The resort was later closed for additional remodeling over the summer,...

Beautiful hotel & grounds! Restaurant food was good. There weren't many choices each night but I'm sure it's because they are new & getting off the ground. All the staff was wonderful especially Zac our Preferred Club pool bartender!

I traveled to Dreams Delight Playa Bonita Panama From November 8th to the 15th with my wife and another couple.
